Can'T Escape

From the corner of my eye
Hard to fathom what I saw
Turned my head as if to try
And into love so deep I fall

Unlike I've ever felt before
It tossed and turned me like a storm
Nothing's made me troubled more
Nor, ever have I felt so warm

Eyes that capture mine in chains
Oh, so tightly locked to yours
Finding comfort in this pain
Gripped so tight forever more

Don't ever let me look away
Please never, never let me go
In your eyes I want to stay
In your heart I want to grow

So content, you make me feel
Alive inside your garden eyes
Nothing's ever felt so real
Can't escape, won't even try

Encompassed by love, never wanting to leave. Delightful poem: D
Those words 'garden eyes' captivate me! This has the sound of an Elizabethan love song - delightful. Linda
I like this line a lot even though it provokes that garden of Eden with its sense of innocence - and a beginning just as this poem is: Alive inside your garden eyes.
